It is not possible to restore a deleted sprint in JIRA. The only thing that you can do is load a XML backup somewhere. Do notice that when loading an XML backup, this will replace your current environment data.
If this is not an option, you should rebuild the sprint.
I did the same thing, quite accidentally, from the "Sprint Report". The name of the sprints was wrong in one of my projects and when I fixed it, I deleted the other incorrect sprints from the report....or as it turned out, altogether. The sprint report appears to be for a single project, but in fact, it is for all projects. Further, quite honestly, I don't believe one should be allowed to delete a sprint from within report. The implication is that something is being deleted from a report, not the item itself.
So, our velocity data is now missing from our first two sprints.
Is there really no better solution than restoring some backed up XML (by the way, we use Jira Cloud)?
Once you delete something in Jira you have lost that data forever be it issues, attachments or any of the configuration objects.
Thats what inspired us at Revyz to build an app for simplifying backing up your cloud Jira instance which includes issues, attachments, comments, configuration objects and more.
Please visit our market place page to see all things we can help you with protecting your data in your Jira cloud instance - Revyz Backup & Restore
Additional information is also available at - Revyz Backup & Restore for Jira Software Cloud
Also note Atlassian recommends that you backup your data per the SaaS Shared responsibilities
I would love to get your feedback on what we are doing and how to improve given an opportunity.
Atlassian, Customer Shared Responsibilities - Very good reference doc
Atlassian Security Practices - An excellent reference of Atlassian Security practices
Rewind for Jira Cloud allows you to restore deleted Sprints, as well as your other important Jira data (Projects, Issues, etc.)
